Geekery—Ocarina of Time Edition (Part 1: Music of Hyrule)

"This song is dedicated to the power of the heart...  Listen to the Bolero of Fire..." -Sheik 

It's no secret that The Legend of Zelda has greatly impacted gaming history. It is the fifth game in the installment, and was the first Legend of Zelda game to utilize 3D graphicswhich was revolutionary to the gaming community. 

However, one of my favorite aspects of this game is its music

If you've played Ocarina of Time, you understand how brilliantly composed this music was. In this post, I will share with you my Top Five Songs from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

Without further ado, let's start!

E.l.f Cosmetics Haul!

I don't claim to know everything about makeup, but I do enjoy wearing it and applying it! 
I believe makeup is an art form that goes unrecognized, and as I have stated in my about me tab I am a connoisseur and advocate for all forms of The Arts. 
A couple of days ago, I received my E.l.f Cosmetics package in the mail full of the goodies I purchased! Want to see all of the products? Let's get into it, shall we?

Creativity. Wisdom. Freedom. These are attributes that video games instill in gamers.

Finding Time to Relax

So, I'm going to be honest. 

I've been very stressed out lately. I think it carried over from the end of the last semester (I love you too, Finals Week) but for some reason it just decided to stick around. Now, with only a few weeks of summer, I'd like to take a moment to relax. 

Not just "sit and do nothing" relax, but a true, content relax. I want to feel refocused and centered.

Music Mondays! (There's No Way Like Broadway!)

Hello everyone! 
It's Monday again, and I know you're excited to join me in discovering new music, or listening to old favorites! 

Today's post is about Musical Theatre, a beautiful genre that I have grown to love over the past couple of years. I know it's not everyone's cup of tea, but as I have expressed in my about me tab, Drama and Musical Theatre are a huge part of my life. When I discovered I could connect with audiences not only with my acting, but with my voice as well, it was such a liberating experience! 

But, I digress. (Comment if you would like to read a post about my experiences in theatre!) 
The playlist I have chosen from my repertoire today is entitled "theatre time".

Let's get into it!

Geekery--Ocarina of Time Edition (Intro to My Zelda Obsession)

"Time passes, people move. Like a river's flow, it never ends. A childish mind will turn to noble ambition. Young love will become deep affection. The clear water's surface reflects growth. Now listen to the Serenade of water to reflect upon yourself." -Sheik

So, from my previous post that began my gaming tab here on my blog, I mentioned my love for The Legend of Zelda

I didn't go into extreme detail, but if you are looking to feel some nostalgia and get the urge to pull out your N64, this post is for you.

Music Mondays (Disney Style!)

It's that time again! Wow, a week has come and gone...this is crazy. How do I only have 49 days left of summer before I have to go back to college? 

Anyway, lets get into the post!
Today, I am in a Disney sort of mood. Do you ever just have the desire to sing the Disney songs at the top of your lungs? (Don't lie, I know you do!) Well, today I will be putting my Spotify playlist "Don't Doubt the Disney" on shuffle and see what we come up with for my first ten! Per the usual, I will link the music with the title, so you can enjoy as we go down the list! (P.s, I get a little in-depth about Disney...you've been warned ♡)

Livin' La Vida Loca (aka being a college student) Part 1

Hello, lovelies!

Today I figured I would write a little something about college. As you may or may not remember from previous posts and my about me tab, I shared that I just finished my first year of college studying Music Education. This coming fall I will be entering my second year, and I think I learned a thing or two during the time I spent on campus. For those of you reading this as incoming freshman, my hope is that you all feel as if you've received a "sneak peak" into your potential college life (and if you're already past that point in your life, just read it and give me very hearty "amen") Alright, let's get started!

An Ode to the Geeks & Gamers

I've always been into geeky things. For me though, they weren't always categorized as "geeky" or "nerdy" until much later in life. It really was just a norm for me. I guess what I really want to express is the fact that for some people, video games are more than just a fun thing to do to pass the time.
